Epic Systems buys Ella`s carousel and collection of whimsical art and toys

The Ella’s Deli carousel may whirl again.

Epic Systems Corp. has bought the former Madison restaurant’s historic outdoor carousel and the collection of whimsical art and toys inside that made Ella’s Deli a favorite of children and adults alike before it closed in January after 41 years.

“It’s really good news. It all happened very, very fast,” said Ken Balkin, who owns the Ella’s Deli building and business with his wife, Judy. “Epic Systems has purchased the carousel and the art collection and they’re going to carry it forward into their campus in a real positive way.”


Ken Notes: This is perfect for the EPIC campus but will be missed on East Wash...
